We've been running 'Stranded', an intimate weekly BYO event featuring music, comedy, cabaret and theatre since the start of 2018 and it's been class. Tickets are a mere £6.
Emer Maguire has been using comedy and music to inspire curiosity and learning about science since being crowned UK’s best science communicator by international competition, FameLab in 2015.
Emer’s talks have included topics such as; ‘Why do we kiss?’; ‘Why do we love to fall in love?’; and, ‘Why can’t apes talk?’ and as a stand up scientist she looks at the world of sex, music, evolution and more, asks the questions we might be afraid to and delivers the answer in in unexpected ways. It’s not like any show you’ve seen before and, just for Stranded, Emer is rolling out a new show squeezing her awesome music, comedy and science into one amazing show.
“Emer combines her love of writing and poetry with her abilities on the piano, guitar, uke and drums. The resulting songs are fresh, original and always based in truth. Live, she brings them to life with that loop pedal, sampler, guitar and fantastic pop voice.” Chris Jones
